Key Insights From The Awards
In coordination with the awards program, we produced our 2020 Operational Excellence Awards Report (get your free copy here!) where we have shared key insights from our research and best practices on delivery efficiency and marketing that was shared by the winners.
There were a number of key insights in the report including:
- Winners Earned More Per Delivery: Winners on average earned 20-30% more revenue per delivery than businesses that are not monitoring their accounts.
- Location Wasn’t A Determining Factor: Out of 10 Delivery Efficiency Winners, we had propane marketers from 10 different states. While they all served different types of customers in their regions, they found different ways to be efficient with tank monitoring.
- Engaging Customers with Tank Monitoring: All of the winners are providing a tank monitoring service to customers. While some offer this as a free value add with the mobile app, others are charging specific customer account types such as generator accounts. In every case, though, customers know that the propane marketer is using monitors to better serve them.
